Sources told Reuters that the Taliban administration’s public morality ministry on Monday patrolled the entrances to all government offices, checking that employees had grown beards and adhered to a dress.

It was gathered that representatives from the Ministry for the Propagation of Virtue and Prevention of Vice were instructing all government employees not to shave their beards, to wear local clothing consisting of a long, loose top and trousers, and a hat or turban.

The sources, moreover, claimed workers were told to ensure they prayed at the correct times, in strict observance of the Islamic tenets.

The workers were also told they would from now on be unable to enter offices and would eventually be fired if they did not meet the dress codes.

A spokesman for the public morality ministry did not respond to a request for comment.
